This 7-days tour is the perennial favorite trip to the Caucasus. You will enjoy views of the Caucasus mountains, scramble up long rocky slopes to ridges, walk over the glaciers and snows, and finally climb up to Mount Kazbegi (5047m) which is one the giant peaks of the Greater Caucasus Mountains. All days we will witness the incredible scenery and landscape which is the most spectacular and exciting things in the whole world. You will be above the clouds and the sky and overlook the ground beneath you. Compare to its height (5047m), climbing to mount Kazbegi is not very difficult but still requires very careful preparation and a bit lucky to reach the peak.
